I’ve been living in my black high waist H&M jeans. I added a rip in both knees because it looks cool. I know older people who ask me all the time if I really pay for clothing with rips and tears ALREADY in them. It’s an old folk joke and it gets me every time. I’m a fan of holes and worn out looking clothing. I won’t pay an exorbitant amount for it though. That would just be silly. It makes me feel very rock-star, very hip when there is a hole or two in my outfit. I need to feel like Kanye when my 9 to 5 and mom days become overwhelming.
When in doubt, opt for denim and a classic white shirt. You can never go wrong.
The black and camel coat and nude sandals are perfectly paired.
I know it’s cold and a leather jacket may not be enough but nothing looks cooler with ripped jeans than leather.
Greys and blacks are no fail. This faux leather sac is perfect for slinging on your back, leaving your hands free for browsing the racks or hold your little ones hand when walking.
What key pieces have you been living in for the past few months?
Monday comes after a busy weekend of celebrating birthdays for the littlest members of my family. Throwing and even attending birthday parties for the little ones can be tiring but fun at the same time. My sister threw a party for her now 2-year old and the theme was amazing as per usual. It was an art party. The kiddies got to design their own little tote bags and create their own painted art. I found the coolest blue wall to snap some pics in front of this weekend as well.
Getting my hair ready in the midst of all the breeze.
Ok, the mane is tame.
The festive and colorful paper straws to compliment the lollipops.
There were plenty of fabric markers on hand to design your own tote.
The little ones also showed their creative sides by painting these masterpieces.
Try some of these ideas for your next children party. The kiddies loved the temporary tattoos. I was tattooing all afternoon.

Say yes to flower power! Florals are perfect for Spring while welcoming to Summer. The short hem is flattering if you have longer gams to show off or muscular ones that you’ve created this Winter at the gym. http://www.forever21.com.
This short floral dress goes great with a denim shirt or a denim vest.
Denim NEVER fails! When in doubt, just grab your favorite jean shorts. Overalls have made a comeback. You remember them from the 80s. You probably thought you’d never go back there but its ok to take an 80s leap. http://www.express.com.
Denim will never steer you wrong. Try a par of short shorts or overalls.
